HUSHP is made up of two parts that work together: the Student Health Fee (SHF) and the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). With the Student Health Fee and the Student Health Insurance Plan, students can access most of their care at Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) with no additional copay or charge. Coverage for students starts on August 1 for the fall term and February 1 for the spring term.
Please note: the Student Health Insurance Plan waiver and the Student Health Fee waiver are separate from each other and must be waived for both the fall and spring terms.

*With the exception of MHCM, MPH-EPI (online/on-campus), and summer-only degree students. Students in these programs are not eligible to enroll in the Harvard University Health Programs. A waiver does not need to be submitted for students in these programs because insurance coverage is not offered for summer programs.
